Luke 24:1–53

The Resurrection

Matt. 28:1–8; Mark 16:1–8; John 20:1–10

24 Now aon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they, 1and certain other women with them, came to the tomb bbringing the spices which they had prepared. cBut they found the stone rolled away from the tomb. dThen they went in and did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. And it happened, as they were 2greatly perplexed about this, that ebehold, two men stood by them in shining garments. Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen! fRemember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, saying, The Son of Man must be gdelivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.’ ”

And hthey remembered His words. iThen they returned from the tomb and told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. 10 It was Mary Magdalene, jJoanna, Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them, who told these things to the apostles. 11 kAnd their words seemed to them like 3idle tales, and they did not believe them. 12 lBut Peter arose and ran to the tomb; and stooping down, he saw the linen cloths 4lying by themselves; and he departed, marveling to himself at what had happened.

Christ Appears on the Road to Emmaus

Mark 16:12, 13

13 mNow behold, two of them were traveling that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was 5seven miles from Jerusalem. 14 And they talked together of all these things which had happened. 15 So it was, while they conversed and reasoned, that nJesus Himself drew near and went with them. 16 But otheir eyes were restrained, so that they did not know Him.

17 And He said to them, What kind of conversation is this that you have with one another as you 6walk and are sad?”

18 Then the one pwhose name was Cleopas answered and said to Him, “Are You the only stranger in Jerusalem, and have You not known the things which happened there in these days?”

19 And He said to them, What things?”

So they said to Him, “The things concerning Jesus of Nazareth, qwho was a Prophet rmighty in deed and word before God and all the people, 20 sand how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him to be condemned to death, and crucified Him. 21 But we were hoping tthat it was He who was going to redeem Israel. Indeed, besides all this, today is the third day since these things happened. 22 Yes, and ucertain women of our company, who arrived at the tomb early, astonished us. 23 When they did not find His body, they came saying that they had also seen a vision of angels who said He was alive. 24 And vcertain of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said; but Him they did not see.”

25 Then He said to them, O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! 26 wOught not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His xglory?” 27 And beginning at yMoses and zall the Prophets, He 7expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.

28 Then they drew near to the village where they were going, and aHe 8indicated that He would have gone farther. 29 But bthey constrained Him, saying, c“Abide with us, for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent.” And He went in to stay with them.

30 Now it came to pass, as dHe sat at the table with them, that He took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. 31 Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him; and He vanished from their sight.

32 And they said to one another, “Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?”

The Proof of His Resurrection

Mark 16:14; John 20:19–23; 1 Cor. 15:5

33 So they rose up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven and those who were with them gathered together, 34 saying, “The Lord is risen indeed, and ehas appeared to Simon!” 35 And they told about the things that had happened on the road, and how He was 9known to them in the breaking of bread.

36 fNow as they said these things, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and said to them, Peace to you.” 37 But they were terrified and frightened, and supposed they had seen ga spirit. 38 And He said to them, Why are you troubled? And why do doubts arise in your hearts? 39 Behold My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself. hHandle Me and see, for a ispirit does not have flesh and bones as you see I have.”

40 1When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His feet. 41 But while they still did not believe jfor joy, and marveled, He said to them, kHave you any food here?” 42 So they gave Him a piece of a broiled fish 2and some honeycomb. 43 lAnd He took it and ate in their presence.

The Great Commission

Acts 1:3–8

44 Then He said to them, mThese are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me.” 45 And nHe opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures.

46 Then He said to them, oThus it is written, 3and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, 47 and that repentance and premission of sins should be preached in His name qto all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 And ryou are witnesses of these things.

The Ascension

Mark 16:19; Acts 1:9

49 sBehold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city 4of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.”

50 And He led them out tas far as Bethany, and He lifted up His hands and blessed them. 51 uNow it came to pass, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them and carried up into heaven. 52 vAnd they worshiped Him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy, 53 and were continually win the temple 5praising and blessing God. 6Amen.
